Arms Aloft's excellent debut album back in print again with 2 bonus live songs. White vinyl, screen printed covers - looks great!
Available in France through Guerilla Asso and in the US through Arms Aloft (after the end of their Euro tour)
SAWDUST CITY finds ARMS ALOFT bringing more of the brand of intelligent punk they debuted on COMFORT, but expanding on it. The influence of DILLINGER FOUR and THE CLASH is still there, but perhaps more obviously filtered through the range of everything from SEBADOH to Japanese rock group THE PILLOWS or a KURT VONNEGUT book-on-tape that you're likely to hear rattling from the two working speakers in the shitty red van they call home. The album is both musically and lyrically dense, but never pretends to be more than the punk rock record it is proud to be.
